Specialized Services Overview: Types of Therapy
If you or a loved one needs counseling services in Dallas, TX, Origins Counseling is here to help. Our compassionate team of clinical therapists is trained in a wide range of therapeutic modalities for mental health and substance use disorders to help you throughout your entire recovery journey.
Mental health issues are common, and you are not alone. We help you acknowledge and modify destructive thought patterns through one-on-one therapies delivered in-office or virtually. Individual therapy effectively treats co-occurring mental health conditions, such as depression or anxiety, which can complicate recovery. Finding treatments tailored to your unique life experience, age, gender, and profession is critical to recovery.
We pride ourselves on crafting personalized treatment for our patients and addressing all their unique concerns. Individual therapy helps you understand thoughts, feelings, old thought patterns, and behaviors that contribute to substance use and learn how to replace negative behaviors with healthier habits. In addition to providing masters-level therapists, we can help you develop the social and emotional life skills that will help you to thrive by discovering new ways to deal with stress, social responsibilities, and relationships.
Our closest allies—our husbands, wives, and significant others—are often the first to suffer because of our substance use. Couples’ counseling and treatment equip you and your loved one to make and effectively navigate challenges or emotional changes while adjusting to a life in recovery. This type of therapy helps facilitate each person’s ability to better understand and cope with their difficulties in a safe space while benefiting from the opportunity to establish mutual support and improve emotional well-being.
Mental health disorders can challenge our closest bonds of love, and both partners deserve equal support. The best evidence-based care approaches to substance use disorders focus on family or social networks as a critical factor in successful therapy. Our therapist helps you develop more effective communication skills. As a couple, you can end the process of enabling addictive behaviors and face specific life events such as job loss, caring for aging parents, or the death of a loved one more easily.
Like many people needing substance use treatment, you may have a history of abuse or neglect. Using alcohol or other drugs is often a symptom of trauma, and if this mental health condition goes untreated, recovery may seem impossible. Our highly trained therapists understand that men and women process trauma differently and provide the specialized healing modalities you need. Our holistic approach to trauma care offers a safe and nurturing environment.
Stress-related disorders, like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), require specialized therapies. We help you develop healthy coping strategies through evidence-based therapeutic interventions with love and care. Each healing modality enables you to feel safe and comfortable in your skin. Our licensed therapists offer customized treatment plans to help you de-escalate fear, anticipate trauma triggers, manage anger or mood swings, measure anxiety responses, and process traumatic memories.
At Origins Counseling, we use a counseling approach known as motivational interviewing (MI) to help you find the motivation to make a positive behavior change, even if you have mixed feelings about the change. We can help you examine your feelings and empower you to make the desired changes. Likewise, MI can help you make dietary changes to prevent obesity and reduce complications associated with diabetes. Our therapists also use MI to help you identify behaviors you wish to change regarding sexual behavior, physical activity, or smoking.
Motivational interviewing is also valuable for the treatment of several anxiety disorders as well as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Motivation starts from inside, rather than externally, through the ideas or experiences of your therapist. If you want to make a healthy change in your life, we can help empower you to do so by helping you examine your true motivations. By talking together about your feelings and goals, we will help you discover the self-empowerment you already possess as you take responsibility for your actions and decisions. MI is rooted in empathy rather than judgment and enables you to begin to recognize discrepancies between your core values and actions so you can clarify your personal goals for recovery.
Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a particular type of therapy we use at Origins Counseling for people prone to intense experiences of emotions. DBT is used often with people with borderline personality disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), suicidal ideation, depression, anxiety, and eating disorders such as bulimia and binge-eating. For patients who struggle with self-harming behaviors such as cutting or substance use disorders, DBT can be particularly effective.
While cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of talk therapy where you learn to understand how thoughts affect your behaviors, DBT focuses on helping you accept the reality of your life while also learning how to change behaviors that are not helpful. Your DBT-trained therapist will help you find a balance between accepting who you are, your challenges, and the benefits of change as you discover tools to improve emotion regulation. Origins Counseling DBT sessions may be one-on-one or in group settings.
At Origins Counseling, we use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help you learn to become more aware of your unique thinking patterns. With your therapist’s help, you will learn to identify times when your negative thinking has caused difficulties and how to manage stressful life situations better. Even a few structured sessions of CBT at Origins Counseling can help address emotional challenges like how to cope with medical illness, deal with grief or loss, manage chronic pain, learn better communication methods, and resolve relationship conflicts.
CBT sessions with your Origins Counseling therapist can help treat many mental health disorders, like depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety disorders, or eating disorders. Other mental illnesses that respond positively to CBT may include sexual disorders, sleep disorders, phobias, substance use disorders, and obsessive-compulsive disorders. CBT is an excellent adjunct to your care plan if you are dealing with schizophrenia or bipolar disorders, particularly when combined with prescribed medications. Your CBT sessions may be conducted one-on-one or in groups using a goal-oriented approach to focus on problems.
Origins Counseling has compassionate therapists who provide a highly personalized psychological and emotional wellness approach. Each mental health counselor is trained in effective techniques to help you regain health and happiness. Mental health symptoms can exist independently or co-occur with substance use issues. Whatever your situation, our team offers diagnostic assessments and can help you track your progress with our assessment tools to ensure that you have an effective plan for healing.
We offer many techniques to improve mental health, including CBT, DBT, MI, and trauma therapies, such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). Our understanding therapists teach skills firmly grounded in current evidence-based practices. Sessions may be virtual or in-person according to your needs.
Addiction is a family disease, and every family member needs a path to recovery. Your loved one’s addiction causes sleepless nights and overwhelming, powerless feelings. Our licensed therapists can help identify and face the emotional, psychological, and social issues that further complicate addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders.
Our family case management professionals provide guidance and support during every phase of your loved one’s recovery. You’ll receive education, assistance, support, guidance, coaching, and referrals to professionals. Active involvement in your loved one’s recovery vastly improves the chances of long-term success, your household’s ability to function, and the mental health of other family members. Family therapy can serve as an opportunity to address additional co-occurring mental health issues, such as depression or anxiety, which may exist within the family that impede family communication and contribute to relapse.
When you enter Origins Counseling, we start preparing you for discharge and long-term recovery. To craft a comprehensive wellness plan, we will collaborate with anyone you would like to have on your team to provide you with a fully customized plan for lifelong recovery.
You may invite other stakeholders to participate in the process. If you consent, we can connect with auxiliary contact points, including loved ones or professional referents. We include these trusted and important contacts in the planning process through ongoing communication. Though loved ones cannot ultimately dictate anyone’s plan for recovery, they may provide valuable insight into your unique needs. We will work as a team to build a continuing care plan that considers each vital relationship. This plan may include counseling, medication, family support, alumni care, and accountability.
We offer several support groups, both in-person and virtually via Zoom. We have day and evening groups to accommodate a wide range of schedules. Our Women in Recovery Process group meets for two hours weekly on Tuesdays. This group covers topics such as codependency, depression, anxiety, anger, guilt, and shame using different types of therapy such as CBT, DBT, motivational interviewing, peer support, accountability, and feedback.
And because we believe everyone can benefit from support, our family support group is always free and open to the public every Tuesday morning and Wednesday evening on Zoom. Email email@example.com for more information.
As you know, families are highly complex systems. While your loved one is receiving any type of therapy or residential treatment, you and other family members can receive emotional support and educational information through our family-intensive process. We provide tools for increased connection, communication, problem-solving, and tips for self-reflection. Family intensives will give action ideas for day-to-day life.
Spouses, parents, caregivers, siblings, and children are all impacted by a family crisis and need support, care, and healing strategies. The time and frequency of family intensives can vary from three to six hours or one to two days, according to your specific needs. Several types of therapy are available to help family members deal with substance use, mental health disorders, trauma, loss, and grief. Even if your loved one is not currently in treatment, family intensive sessions are available so that you can get well, too.
